About this Dufour 512

Cruising World Magazine's Best Full-Size Production Cruiser

SAIL Magazine's pick for Best Flagship Cruiser 

The Dufour 512 perfectly combines the philosophy of a yacht with elegant and luxurious style as well as outstanding performance. 

After the success of the Dufour 500 GL, selling over 140 units in 2 years, Dufour proposes a revisited version of this exceptional yacht which benefits from all the innovations and features integrated in the latest Grand Large models. 

While sailing, the new fixed bowsprit, helmsman console, and inclined boom are advantages for easy maneuvering.  At anchor, you will enjoy the fully equipped exterior galley with barbecue, sink and fridge as well as the wide sunbaths and lighted handrails for an unreached lifestyle approach on any yacht of the same category. 

Incredible performance, easy to sail and dreamily elegant, the Dufour 512 promises intense emotions in all conditions and embodies a new dimension to sailing adventures.
